Umineko - Mystery/Literature discussion

This thread is to be used for discussing the aspects of the mystery genre that are heavily used in Umineko no Naku Koro ni.

A few subjects you might want to ramble on about:
  • Discussing how certain mystery novels might have influenced Umineko.
  • Discussing and recommending novels that are similar in thematic or plot to the series.
  • Discussing references made in the series to mystery novels
  • Comparing structure, setup, setting and detectives to other more well known novels.
Important Note: as the guidelines suggest, this thread serve as grounds to discuss the mystery elements/fundations regarding the Franchise, which include references and the like.

As such, this thread does -not- serve as a thread to discuss whether or not Umineko is a proper Mystery Novel, nor discussing the plot or "what really happened" whatsoever (the later should be discussed in the spoiler thread or the appropriate episode thread).

[Warning]: As this thread is meant to discuss critical plot portions of the tale, it will probably cover everything that the PC doujin games have unfolded. Therefore, for those who have followed the anime or english translated episodes only, I wholeheartedly discourage you to proceed, unless you are willing to spoil yourself.
Please be aware this is not supposed to be a spoiler thread, therefore, please do not start asking about how the ending was done and so forth.
